Spooner Family | A family session in a cool alleyway in downtown Clinton, Iowa

I was so excited to hear from Kara! I first met her in May when I photographed the Clinton Community College nursing pinning ceremony. My dad hooked me up with that gig; he’s one of the instructors for the nursing program and thought it would be great for them to have the event documented. This was my second time photographing the pinning and it’s been such a privilege to watch the hard work pay off for the students. Kara sat with us for lunch after and we got to chit chat, she’s so kind and I know my dad loves working with her as well. So when she emailed me to ask if I could do her family pictures of course I said yes! Thankfully we found a date that worked during this crazy busy Fall photography season and even got super lucky with the weather.

Even though the handsome men in her family were a little less than thrilled to have family portraits taken, it didn’t take them long to relax and make it a fun experience! I loved their session and the photos we got from it…here are some of them!

Collin + Brady | A twin brothers' senior session at Van Der Veer park in Davenport, Iowa

Collin and Brady started their senior year at Bettendorf High School the day before their senior pictures were taken. They’re both pretty excited about finishing high school and starting a new chapter! Collin plans to continue singing (he has an amazing voice!) in college while he works on his major. In fact, he’s getting an early start at it because of plans to graduate early next January. If only I had been that ambitious! Brady also has big plans to head off to college after graduating with his friends next Spring. I look forward to seeing what they choose to do in this life. I may be a little bias, but I think they are both very talented, funny, smart and I mean, just look at how handsome they are! I have no doubt they will both do great things!

Have a fantastic senior year Collin and Brady and the rest of the Class of 2020!
